“Rules and regulations may not change the hearts of men, but they can restrict bad behavior, and that is important too.”

“A doctrine of black supremacy is as dangerous as a doctrine f white supremacy.”

“Let justice roll down as rivers and righteousness as a mighty stream.”

“With this faith we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope.”

Martin Luther King Jr., “Why Jesus Called a Man a Fool” August 27, 1967

King delivers “Why Jesus Called a Man a Fool” at Mount Pisgah Missionary Baptist Church, Chicago, Illinois, on August 27, 1967.

“Stand up for righteousness, stand up for justice, stand up for truth, and I will be with you , even until the end of the world.”

Comment: In Luke 12:20 , Yeshua says Our Heavenly Father calls a man a fool for building barns to store his yield so he can enjoy leisure time, because he is about to die, and will not enjoy the fruits of his labor. But in Genesis 49:41 Joseph saved nations, including the future Jews, by foreseeing a drought and storing food, and we read in Proverbs 21: 20 “Precious treasures and oil are in the dwelling of the wise, but a foolish man consumes them. ” So it’s not the saving or spending which determines whether someone is foolish or wise. It is the degree in which we are tuned in to the voice of Our Heavenly Father and the needs of those around us that determines how wise or foolish we are.
